How to Know if Your Ministry Is Producing the Right Kind of Fruit

What kind of disciples are coming out of your ministry? What kind of teenagers or parents or businesspeople is your church producing?

Evangelist Greg Stier says having an impactful ministry means you have to measure your outcomes. But how do you know if what you're doing is producing a good outcome?

On his podcast, Gospelize, Stier shares the answer to this question.

"Just as a farmer scatters seed, and it grows and grows until it's finally mature and ready to harvest, we scatter gospel seeds that grow and grow until they get the outcomes that we've been hoping and praying for," he says.

"... We don't know exactly how the Word of God or the gospel of Christ grow and produce fruit, but it's the power of that message, the power of the gospel message that changes lives. It is producing fruit. It is bearing fruit and producing outcomes, even when we're not around, even when we don't know about it."
